edX Learning Management System

  • Lines in bulk email messages were not wrapped at 998 characters, which caused error messages and erroneous characters in some email programs. All lines are now wrapped at 998 characters automatically. (LMS-1466)

  • Occasionally student submissions for MatLab problems are not graded successfully and the MatLab grader times out. There is now a Reset button that allows students to resubmit their answer without counting the resubmission and another attempt of the problem.
